Wow, I love this! If you think you can't wear reds, then this is the red for you! The formula is nice and creamy and the color brightens my complexion. I am so happy I bought this!
I got a sample of this with my BB order and thought it looked really ugly in the container. kind of a muddy brown, not interesting at all. I played with it awhile, BB advertises using this to fill in the eyebrows but it didn't work too well for me. I tried this applied wet as eyeliner and was amazed at the results! The most natural looking and flattering look I've tried! This may be my new everyday eyeliner!
Highlighters -Bobbi Brown - Brownie Shimmerbrick Shimmer Brick Compact

Brownie is fabulous - the only shimmerbrick that I feel is worth the $! I'm PPP, and worn as a blush this really warms my skin and gives it a glow. I love to wear the colors individually as eyeshadow in the crease area - especially pretty over a frosty champagne eyeshadow and bronze eyeliner.

LOVE. The color extra light is perfect. Literally melted into my skin and left it looking radiant, but not oily. I've found a hg!

I LOVE THIS! I have very sensitive and fair skin. I use this, concealer around my eyes and finish with a very light dusting of powder and my skin looks healthy and even toned. I was very skeptical, so glad I took the splurge and bought it!
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Colour Juice Stick- Chai Love You [DISCONTINUED]
SaucyMinx 3/29/2006 3:46:00 PM
An exact copy of Loreal Shine Delice lipsticks that were discontinued a few years ago! Chai love you is a lovely pinky brown nude with no shimmer. Sweet smelling and feels great on, but doesn't last very long. Overall a great product! $7.99 at Target. UPDATE: an exact match for Chanel giggle glossimer!
Love this color and the amazing soft texture. Soft, powdery, frosty pale pink. Hate that it fell apart in chunks in my makeup case.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Color Surge Impossibly Glossy - Cream Soda
SaucyMinx 2/15/2006 10:42:00 AM
The texure of these glosses are wonderful! Not sticky or scented. Cream soda is beautiful - bronzey rose color. Unfortunately in 3 hours the color faded and I was left with tons of sparkle on my pale lips. Not a pretty look! The sparkle isn't gritty, but it didn't look nice as soon as it faded.
This is such a great face scrub! Really effective and rinses clean, doesn't leave little grains behind. The mint in it leaves my skin feeling clean and invigorated!
Oh how I love this. I usually only wear OPI, but I was looking for a sheer natural color and happened to be in Target and picked this up. The perfect color for healthy looking shiny nails! This has sparkle in it, but it's so subtle.
At first glance, this looks so similar to many of Chanel's other blushes (such as Tempting Beige and Mystery). Upon swatching it, it's a much lighter version of these colors - more shimmery and peachy. Lovely!
Lotions/ Creams -Origins - Calm to Your Senses lavender and vanilla body souffle
SaucyMinx 12/20/2005 8:49:00 AM
I'm a huge fan of the lavender/vanilla Origins line, so I was thrilled to receive this cream as a Christmas gift. Very soothing in texture and scent. I like to use this directly after a hot bath, it makes my skin feel so smooth and the scent is great right before bed.
As a huge fan of Lancome mascaras, I'm disappointed to say I hate Flextencils! It's a really weak formula. Doesn't hold a curl at all and flakes really badly. Not even good for a light application - thought I could use it for more natural days since it's impossible to apply this heavily but it gave me spider lashes. Sorry!
Bath Treatments -Philosophy - Amazing Grace Luxurious Bubble Bath
SaucyMinx 12/6/2005 3:03:00 PM
I adore this fragrance - it's light and relaxing and makes my bathroom smell so good. This is a new product for holiday 2005. It's packaged in a bottle resembling wine. For $25, you get alot for your money - it also dispenses through a small hole so none is wasted. Big plus for the smashproof bottle too. Overall, a really nice bath product and a must have for fans of Amazing Grace.
Concealers -Christian Dior - DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer
SaucyMinx 11/22/2005 8:47:00 AM
This is a great new concealer! Dior makes some great foundations and I was excited to try this concealer. I don't typically need alot - just a little around my eyes in the dark areas and to cover some red around my nose (darn allergies!). The texture is silky smooth and easy to apply. My only complaint is I wish the coverage was a little heavier. Around my eyes I need to apply twice to cover dark circles. Ivory was a perfect match for me.
